Richie to Prosecutor

Your Drug Test on Me Stinks!

7/10/2007 8:38 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained a document that holds the key to Nicole Richie's DUI defense -- she will claim the drug tests cops performed on her were bogus. Life isn't simple!

0710_nicole_doc_launch_fm_01-1
The declaration, filed today by Shawn Chapman Holley, Nicole's lawyer, states, "Dr. Terence McGee as a defense expert ... will challenge the prosecutor's scientific evidence and the conclusions reached by the drug recognition expert."

The pregnant Richie's trial was set to begin tomorrow morning. Chapman Holley appeared before the Commissioner today and asked for a continuance until August 5, because Dr. McGee is not available until then. The commissioner ordered them back to court tomorrow to decide whether he will grant the request for a continuance.

I hate to break it to ya Meathead... but she's half black. I read a detailed Bio on her several years ago including her adopted status etc... Yes she's adopted, Yes she's half Black. I can't remember every detail but she is was a baby of a relative of Lionel Richie, and he adopted her, it stated clearly that she is half Black.

True. However, Nicole Richey is NOT disputing her confession to the officer. She's had months to contradict the officer's statement, but didn't; why not? Which immediately makes me think that the whole thing was caught on the officer's dashboard camera (which ALL CHP & LA Police cars have) and shows her confessing to being drugged up.

I'm sure, if she's losing badly, her attornies will probably try, in a last ditch legal manuever, to intimate that the cops are making it up (it's standard bad lawyer tactics). However, like most bad lawyers, they will probably forget to subpoena the film from the cop's camera (this happens a lot, believe it or not) before they try this tactic, and this will sink her immediately. I've seen this happen lots of times in court, and it's amazing how quickly trials end when the cops dashboard camera film is shown...
